Naji Shatliff is a passionate, knowledgeable and gifted coach of soccer.  He has a very calm, simple and effective delivery of information to players and his ability to progress a session is excellent.  Naji recently completed the NSCAA Premier Coaching Course and I was his immediate instructor.  He was positive within the group, always ready to help and I enjoyed interacting and talking the game with Naji. 

Ian Barker,  Director of Coaching of Education   I    National Soccer Coaches Association of America

It was my pleasure to deliver a coaching education program that Naji Shatliff participated in as a candidate. The award was the highest technical one the National Soccer Coaches Association of America offers, the Premier Diploma.

Naji impressed as a very knowledgeable and competent technical coach. More impressively though he struck me as a coach with integrity, humility and a willingness to develop himself and improve the game for others. Through an intense week of instruction and evaluation I found Naji to be a really good "soccer person" who strives to take the time and effort to do things "the right way". I endorse him strongly as a soccer professional.
